I have some exciting news!
Baby #4 is due to join our family October 5th! We are so excited!
Here are the details!
When did you find out and what were your thoughts?
I actually found out the day before we went to Disneyland! (4 1/2 weeks pregnant) Hence the Mickey Mouse announcement. Crazy timing but we feel so blessed! I am so excited but at times overwhelmed at the thought of having 4 kids!
How far along are you?
I’m 15 weeks and 1 day! Just over 1/3 done! haha But really this pregnancy is going by so fast it’s crazy. My last pregnancy seemed to last forever.
How have you been feeling?
Surprisingly really good! For quite a few weeks I was so exhausted though! I needed a nap each day and went to bed early whenever possible. And now the past few nights I’ve had trouble sleeping but maybe because my husband was out of town. I had a little morning sickness but then it just went away. I never had it bad with past pregnancies but it still made me a little nervous but we’ve heard the heart beat twice now so that’s good.
Boy or Girl?
Don’t know yet! My guess is boy but we’ll find out soon enough. We’ll truly be thrilled with a boy or a girl!
TACOS! Especially carne asada street tacos. Kind of a funny craving huh?
What recipes have you been making from your blog?
I’ve made my No-Bake Energy Bites multiple times. It’s my favorite quick snack that gives me energy. (I make it w/o the M&M’s and + 1/2 cup shredded coconut.) Also, I’ve been making lots of smoothies! Most often I make My Favorite Green Smoothie but add Apple Juice and sometimes change up which fruit I use. And honestly I have been craving my favorite dessert ever- My Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies. Those are heavenly and for some reason chocolate tastes even better when pregnant!
How do your kids feel about you having another baby?
They are thrilled! Well the boys at least. Carina is only 1. The boys talk about it all the time and are planning on the new baby being a boy but we shall see!
Hardest part of this pregnancy?
By far it’s been having a 1 year old! Carina and this baby will only be 19 months apart which will be the closest in age I’ve had with my kids. She still nurses and refuses to give it up anytime soon. I’m ok with this for now but don’t want to nurse two babies! She adores me and needs to be in the same room as me which is fine but for some reason when I’m in the kitchen she insists I hold her which makes cooking difficult. But I’m sure things will get better with time and I think it will be so fun for them to be close in age.
What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy?
Finding out the gender and of course meeting the new baby! There’s nothing quite as sweet as a new baby straight from heaven and I feel so blessed I’ll have 4 kids!
Thanks for reading this far! haha I know I haven’t been consistent at blogging but it’s been so hard with 3 kids and being tired sometimes. My kids always come first though. I have endless amazing recipe ideas so don’t worry I’m not going away! Just be patient with me and I’ll do my best.
